Green Schools
Green Schools is alive and well in Coláiste Mhuire, Ballygar. The school has been involved in this international environmental programme since 2003, and since then the school has earned 5 Green Flags on the themes of Litter and Waste Management, Water Conservation, Energy Conservation and Travel and Transport. Currently we are working on the theme of Biodiversity, or the variety of nature on the planet and the way we are linked with all of nature.

Our committee is made up mainly of First Years, with representatives from all other years. We are ably helped by our very hardworking caretaker Mr. Tom Hannon. Our Transition Year team has made it through to the best 100 schools in the country with their tree-planting campaign "Leaf of Life".
